Andy Hall, dobro and vocalist for the GRAMMY-award winning bluegrass band the Infamous Stringdusters, is announcing his new solo record, 12 Bluegrass Classics for Resophonic Guitar. The album is to be released on October 16, 2020 on Tape Time Records via Regime Music Group.

12 Bluegrass Classics for Resophonic Guitar takes the listener on an all-instrumental journey across the landscape of Hall’s own sound and his influences. The album marks a return to the foundation of his life as a dobro player, featuring the musician and the classic tunes learned early on in his bluegrass journey.

The album, and its first two singles “Leather Britches” and “Amazing Grace” can be pre-saved here.

“I've always striven to push the envelope as a player, but never had the chance to put my stamp on some of the formative tunes I've always played at jam sessions. I chose songs that were familiar to me, shared Andy. “[These are] tunes that I've been playing for years, and that have shaped my playing. These 12 are some of my favorites, and I'm happy to get to offer up my take on them!”

Andy teaches online lessons through the Artistworks teaching platform and to date has taught thousands of students the fundamentals of resonator guitar. Andy has shared the stage and recorded with a wide range of artists including Dolly Parton, Wynona, Emmylou Harris, Earl Scruggs, Ryan Adams, Zack Brown, Charlie Daniels, Jack Black, Rodney Crowell and many others.
